I would like to rename the current net/netatalk package (v2.2.5, which 
is the last release supporting ddp AKA AppleTalk) to either netatalk22 
or netatalk-ddp, and import wip/netatalk30 as net/netatalk30 (with an 
eye to adding a netatalk31).

v2.2.5 has problems with newer Mac OS X versions, and CUPS support is 
non-trivially broken after the update to v1.7.3 (pkg/48889).

v3.1.x is, according to the developers, a technology preview for 
spotlight support with rough edges.
